IN THE PRESS
Thomas Gaffney was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. He survived 12 years of Catholic school before embarking on several careers: computer programmer, barista, and account manager. Much like Henry Bemis in the Twilight Zone episode 'Time Enough at Last', Tom considers himself a bookish little man whose passion is the printed page. He fell in love with books and the idea of writing while reading an old, beat-up copy of Stephen King’s IT. He currently lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and spends too much time and money in random coffee shops.
The award-winning Stranger Things Have Happened is Tom's first foray into self-publishing. He is currently working on a horror novel, and he hopes to have the first draft completed in mid-to-late 2019.
